In 1999, a flick with Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone called Blast From The Past came out. It was about a scientist named Calvin Webber who was played by Christopher Walken, that took his pregnant wife in a deep underground fallout shelter in 1962 when he thought a nuclear war was imminent. During that time, their son Adam played by Fraser (who seemed to had been in every late 90's movie) was born and was exposed to only the culture of 1962 in the shelter such as the music and TV shows of the time. Life was accustomed to not being at the surface.
Fast forward 35 years later, their supplies and food was running low
so someone would have to come above ground and take a risk to get new
products. That was supposed to be Calvin, up until he was ill from
stress from his one visit to the surface. So his son Adam would have to
venture out in a world he had never met.....
This segment takes a look at products that may have been hidden in a
underground fallout shelter for over 20 years and now just coming back
out to be rediscovered....by me. Guess you can call me Adam even though
my name is Matt. These are products I opened when I was first collecting
and is a Part Of My Past, but may not have a memory or a Origins story
to attach to them. Most products I post on here will, but some won't and
those will be covered in this new segment.These products will be
between the years of 1995-1999 only.
Let's just hope my experience with these breaks is better than Adams first visit to the surface.
Believe it or not, I landed this pack for less than a $1 in a pack lot
that I paid a total of $4 for. When I can take a Blast To The Past with a
break like that I will take it all day long. Back in 1995, I busted a
lot of Topps product for hockey and football. I did bust a few packs of
the baseball in both Series 1 and 2 in which both you will see on here
but not much. Which makes these packs more of a Blast From The Past than
So let's take a Blast From The Past with a one pack break of 1995 Topps Series 2 baseball!
The base card set for Series 2 has 396 cards with a couple of subsets
and guys like Ken Griffey Jr and Don Mattingly on the checklist.
So let's see how I did,
Now my parallel pulls,
Well, this pack wasn't quite as strong with the names as my Series 1 break. But, to me anyways, the parallels were worth the .80 along with the memories.
That does it for another Blast From The Past. Much more of these to come including some football breaks!
